Did anyone mention deregulation? Private business does not want to pay so there is underfunding. Shareholders see bottom line so customers are not part of their equation. Some companies get it right, but when there needs to be a cooperation for the common good, the arms get short.
Matt's comment was off-handed and silly, but ease up everyone! I am sure his pointing out the obvious was what most do these days and meant nothing hurtful by it. Prevented from further posting? Ridiculous. I certainly find the Huffington Post (note spelling) comment much more offensive and designed to be so. I enjoy this forum, do we have to be insulting? And political?
